Atletico Madrid’s hard-to-please coach Diego Simeone has given huge praise to Ghana star Thomas Partey.
The Argentine coach was all-smiles after leading his team to a 2-0 win over Getafe last weekend.
"I liked Thomas today. He and Rodrigo [Hernandez Cascante] were great," Simeone told reporters.
The performance from the Ghanaian central midfielder is expected to fuel the growing rumours linking him to clubs such as Inter Milan and Arsenal.
"I think he's improving, Thomas is an amazing player. He could have played for Manchester City [or] Manchester United.
"We're talking about a great player here. I rate him very highly,” Simeone stated.
Atletico are now just five points behind log-leaders Barcelona.
